SPCC WIC- Monroe County (Eastern)

The New York State Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program allows single parent families to provide for their children's dietary needs. NY WIC has dozens of accepted foods, including healthy and balanced choices such as fruits, veggies, 100% juice, whole grain products, infant formula, milk, eggs, and more. WIC helps New York State households to thrive and provides the help and education they should have to consume nutritious foods for overall wellness.

There are many methods the NY WIC program assists Monroe County family members. Get the help your family members need. Learn more today!

SPCC WIC continues to provide services through this trying time.

We will continue to provide ALL Services over the phone until further notice.

Our procedures have been put in place to help protect our families, our staff and our community during this COVID-19 outbreak.

*Prior to your appointment, please update your phone number with us if it has recently changed!

 

HELPFUL COVID-19 TIPS

Regular hand washing can help prevent the spread of germs and is one of the best ways to avoid catching or transmitting COVID-19. You and your child should wash your hands for 20 seconds—the length of time it takes to sing the ABC song—after coming in from playing outside, before preparing meals and after going to the bathroom.

Lavarse las manos con regularidad es una de las mejores maneras de evitar contagiarse o propagar el COVID-19. Enséñales a tus hijos a lavárselas durante por lo menos 20 segundos, lo que toma cantar la canción del alfabeto.

We are in this together! Help your neighbors on WIC by leaving items with a WIC-approved label on the shelves. These are for WIC participants who must follow set guidelines for the foods (including brands and sizes) that they can purchase with their WIC benefits. If we leave WIC-approved items on the shelves, we can ensure that WIC participants do not go home empty handed. #WICStrong #InThisTogether

 

Ahora es común ver estantes vacíos en el mercado. Si no participas en WIC —y no reúnes los requisitos para los beneficios de WIC— por favor, piensa dos veces antes de comprar alimentos con una etiqueta de aprobación de WIC al lado del precio. Estos alimentos son para los participantes en WIC, quienes deben seguir ciertas normas sobre qué alimentos comprar (además de marcas y tamaños) con sus beneficios de WIC. Por favor, ten en cuenta las necesidades de tu vecino. #WICStrong #JuntosEnEstas

We must all play our part to avoid stockpiling key products – like infant formula – to ensure that all shoppers can purchase the products they need.  WIC participants are our neighbors, our friends, and our community. #YouGotThis
